    You'll get Warding totem at 60

    A real draw and shift to Mystic happens at 26 or 28 with the mana balls. Also the short duration buff that adds power is fun to toss out there, plus it chains into heal orb.

    There's still fun to be had and new things to keep it interesting, trust me.

    Thanks. I'll do that when I get home. OP has the guild name listed as "We Are Nice Guys".

    WANG is the name of the guild on Dragonfall. Again, I don't believe there is one on Valley of Titans, but as I've not been there personally I guess I can't say for sure.

    Create a healing ball right when the pull happens, then crank out a couple more as soon as the cool down is done. Then heal people with more than 80% of their health.

    You will have the monsters attention unless the lancer works pretty hard to get it back.

    I have seen suggestions to hold off on the targeted heal until 75% or less health. Pop the healing balls before the fight starts, or spaced out about three cool downs worth (I have the mana balls to space out my drops).

    At the start of battle if you have unactivated charms as a mystic, attack the boss once to go into combat. then let yourself drop so you can retain charm effects without having the slow incombat speed. Healing and buffing doesn't put you in combat even though technically you are still on the threat table

    I'm wondering how heal threat works, and whether you generate threat healing full health targets (overhealing threat). Also, it's fun but kind of sad that at 23 I have all of the heals I'll ever have.

    my understanding is that you get more threat for overhealing.

    Also, who is everyone in game? My main at the moment is Alainya, 35 Lancer

    More than effective heals or more than zero?

    Got to 53 last night and hit up a new zone. Good fucking god mobs have a TON OF HEALTH now!

    It takes, 2 Fireblasts, a Hail Storm, 2-3 Ice Needles/Magma Bombs and 1-2 Void Pulses. It's getting absolutely ridiculous to kill regular mobs. (That's about 30 seconds of chain casting)

  • ForceVoidForceVoid Registered User regular

    Takes it away. Repeatedly. I have to keep Mana Infusion up and cast Mana Siphon pretty often.

    Debating changing up some Glyphs. Might remove the 17% Faster Cast on Fireblast, since I pop Celerity whenever it's up and pretty much don't cast Fireblast without it. Not sure what to get though, I just need to get more damage out...somehow.

    Hitting a new weapon tier is always the best feeling as a berserker. Killing a mob goes from 30second fights to two-hit fights. I got a nice 44 gold axe off the broker for just over 30g and am plowing the undead in the mountains now.

    Yeah that happened to me as a Sorc, too. But, 38-44 is a pretty big gap. I got a new weapon at 50, and a new Fireblast rank...and stuff still took ages to kill. Mobs 50-60 just have fucktons of health, it's ridiculous.

  • Comrade1809Comrade1809 Registered User regular
    If it's this bad for Sorcs, I wonder how crappy it will be for an Archer..

    Ooo, big dragon. On a side note; with mystics having the lock-on condition removal, does that mean the only way to self-cleanse is using healing orbs? It's definitely looks like a different playstyle than my priest for sure, as I'm usually pretty close by DPSing between heals.

    From my understanding the self-heal fairy also cleanses, but haven't verified.

    How long do dungeon runs generally take, on average?

    My biggest issue with MMOs is that I can't always guarantee that I can devote 2+ hours in a stretch to play. Typically what I end up doing is maxing out a char, not being able to do any endgame stuff as it takes too long, and then rolling a new char.

    Just once I'd like to be able to see the end of an MMO. :(

    5 mans can be cleared in about 20-30 min on average depending on knowledge of the dungeon and difficulty. once you get the mechanics down you can probably clear it sub 25 minutes

    I feel like i may have ruined myself on other classes starting with a warrior. I watch other classes fight so statically on noob island and it just seems like such a bummer. I was killing quest bosses other people were bitching about by accident. I would just spend 2 or 3 times longer dancing around them, not taking damage and chewing them up.

    Whoever linked the original warrior mobility video and pointed out the regen glyphs, god bless you. I am enjoying the gameplay so much is almost painful.

    Bolded for emphasis. You called it noob island correctly for a reason.

    Disclaimer: all the below is largely my opinion and observations. I have experience with the lancer and archer to level 20.

    Slayers should be moving around as much as a warrior (based on watching my friend playing.) All ranged should never be hit (regularly), in my opinion. Archers have too many tools to kite like a boss. Berserker has a block, but I would still disengage and reposition in combat.

    Granted, Lancers don't move much. But I can tell you that, for me, that's part of the fun too. I get to feel like an immovable juggernaut grinding my enemies to dust on my lance and shield. And, I can and still do move to dodge an attack, I just don't have a ready made skill for a defensive roll out of the way.

    Really, once BAM's enter the picture, face tanking and static fighting will end up with the player transformed into a red smear on he ground. Unless it's a berserker or lancer with the block skill.

    You will have more power than the gods in this game, you will control the very fates of players across all servers, whether they get a short queue or they'll have to wait for forty agonizing minutes. Muahahaha!

    Ahh ok, so it's in the works at least that's good. I dont want to be PVP'd or ganked all the time in a game like this, but i'd like to still participate in some PVP.

    I applied for the guild as a Mystic.

    Figures. Thanks to trying out a peek weekend, then buying a mini preorder, I had two trial accounts on my main TERA account (EU). Unfortunately they weren't actually labeled with anything useful, just "Trial" and "Trial 2" on one end and "Tera" and "Tera 2" on the other. Asked support to delete the peek so I wouldn't accidentally apply my full game to the wrong one and they went "don't woooooooooooorry, we'll be merging all of those come release".
    Yeah, guess what didn't happen. And guess which account my CE ended up being applied to. Man, it's nice having reserved character names on the wrong account. I'll be twisting their LiveChat crew's fingers come morning if it's the last thing I do.

    Well, my account issues were resolved by the time I got home from work today, fortunately.

    Ended up getting my Slayer to 21, and man does that class ever open up at 16.

    Overhead Strike is a total game changer for Slayer, and completely alters the way it plays. Not to mention causing its DPS to shoot through the goddamn roof.

    Dungeon run speed time changes pretty drastically. Golden Labyrinth is a pretty huge damn dungeon, and while we 4-manned it I'd still wager it takes 35-40 minutes to clear.
